Glitch wipes out some Tripod pages

Author: JT Smith

ZDNET.co.uk: "Tripod, which lets people create personal home pages, routinely
polices its online community for sites that may host content that
violates its terms of service. If Tripod, owned by Internet service
Terra Lycos, receives a complaint by another member or finds
material on someone's page deemed in violation, the service can pull
the site.

Tripod spokeswoman Dorianne Almann said the company's computer
systems had been removing member pages that were in violation of its
terms of service. Unfortunately, many other sites that were not
violating the agreement were swept away as well. These sites will be
restored onto the service in 24 hours to 48 hours."
